Sex Facts That You Can’t Learn in School But You Should Know!

-

A Reddit user, MrDaftJack, asked for one sex fact everyone would benefit from knowing, and people came through with some solid advice!

Don't be shy in asking for what you want — it helps!

"Don't be offended if somebody steers you in the right direction. Learn from it and apply it!"

Even if you're tired, it's important to clean up.

"Peeing and cleaning up after sex are both really important. It helps you and your partner avoid UTIs.Plus a quick rinse will leave you feeling and smelling more refreshed."

There is more than one way to do things.

"Learn how to use your hands, mouth, and tongue as well as your equipment. Oral/manual stimulation can be just as intense as sex."

If your vagina continues to experience pain during penetration, don't be afraid to tell your doctor.

"If your vagina feels uncomfortably tight and/or feels like it burns a bit during penetration, masturbation, inserting a tampon, or during a gynecological exam, then something might be wrong.You might have vulvodynia or vaginismus, which can be treated with pelvic floor therapy or medication. Pain can happen because of stress, lack of lube, or just bad luck, but if it's reoccurring then get checked out! Too many women are told to suffer instead of getting the medical treatment they deserve."

Always, always, always ask FIRST.

"Do not try to do anal without discussing it with your partner first. Nobody likes surprise anal. Especially without lube."

Listening is key.

"If you're doing something and your partner starts saying, 'Yes' or 'Right there' or basically anything encouraging, it means keep doing exactly what you're doing at exactly the same pace you're doing it until the encouragement stops, subsides, or they cum." - KhaoticMess

Moaning can be sexy!

"Don't be afraid to be vocal. I don't just mean dirty talk. If you're enjoying yourself, I wanna know! I don't need porn star dialogue, but gasps of pleasure and, "Oh, wow," when I'm down there get me so hype and so turned on. Sex is the epitome of nonverbal communication, but sighs and moans and gasps just heighten the intensity."

Bodily noises are normal and TOTALLY OK.

"Vagina farts are normal and nothing to be embarrassed about." —Lalauri89

If you can't get turned on, it's not the end of the world.

"Sometimes guys can't get it up, and it's okay. But girls can have the same problem. It's okay if you don't always get as wet as you used to, and it doesn't mean you're broken. There's also no shame in not wanting to have sex. If you aren't feeling it, then you aren't feeling it. You don't owe sex to anybody." —This_is_fine8

Shower sex *might* be overrated.

"Shower sex is not that good. Water is a terrible lubricant, one person is going to be cold, it's usually uncomfortable and cramped, and it's really easy to slip and hurt yourself. Instead, have have sex before and shower together afterwards!"
